Geez! It took me ages to find the gallery (I'm some kind of blind nutcase and didn't see it at first) and then I get caught up for a quarter of an hour in ogling everyone else's stuff. But here, finally, are pictures of my fantastic swap swag from the always amazing astronogirl!


Clockwise from top left: a sweetass crocheted felted purse with my name in wee colourful beads; a rabbit-shaped paper punch (I nearly got mugged for it by my roommate but we've worked out a sharing arrangement); a second purse, this one expertly sewn in totally kickin' fabric and embroidered with my name, some meltingly adorable cat stickers (they've got rabbit ears on--there were more stickers but those have already been abstracted by my roommate); a little pot for my laundry change, with a reminder of the state of my finances at the bottom; a card with a sort of 3-D bird made of scarlet feathers on a painted branch; a bookmark made of paper that astronogirl sewed; and three pairs of gorgeous earrings, one with a matching necklace, all neatly arranged on paper backings which she also sewed.

Whew! Now for close-ups:

Jewelry and bookmark (it says "Yamwam reads... lit... liest... lego" and is already in use inside Goldfinger by Ian Fleming)


Outside of laundry change bucket, which I think she painted herself in my favourite colours, giving it a cool speckly effect (where are my words? I can't find any bon mots today)


The other side of the purses, and...


The totally awesome fabrics with which they are lined! Oh, I just realised I didn't take a good picture of the front of the purses. The sewn one is my favourite, it has a patch of the liner fabric appliqud with a zigzag stitch (I'm not a sewing person, sorry if I'm not using the right terms), on which is embroidered Yamwam, and there are three nifty red buttons sort of flying away on more zigzags. It's already been to the mall and to the movie Bon Cop Bad Cop, and I've only had it for a couple days!

Thank you so much, astronogirl, and I hope you like your stuff as much as I like mine! Oh, I nearly forgot--I did take a picture of the inside of the notebook:
Stencilled in white and decorated in silver pen.

I do hope you like the 1" buttons, I was trying to find ones with squirrels on them but no dice. However, if I get a button maker, which I plan to, I shall certainly try to make you some!

Yay!  I'm glad you liked everything, and are getting use out of it.

A side note on the laundry change container... I painted and varnished and painted tissue paper on it in about 30 or so layers.  I then got some fine-grain sand paper and sanded it until some of the layers showed through.  Then I varnished the whole thing again twice.  I had seen products with that sort of effect before, but didn't really realize how messy the process was... My boyfriend was not amused.

May you never see the "NO CHANGE" on the bottom!

I received my package from Kitten Wrangle this weekend and it is great.  I don't have a camera at the time but I am hoping she will post pics for me.  I got an awesome lunch style bag with a beautiful fairy embroidered on the front. Words can't do her justice.  I also got an adorable friendship bracelet that says Sunshinefairy which happens to be purple my favorite color.  Thanks Kitten Wrangler for the great package.

You shouldn't need to post pics to get feedback. Posting pics in the gallery is just a way of showing appreciation of what you've received, and allowing everyone else to drool over your goodies. I imagine that BambiKhantastic has hit a busy patch in life, and can't update at the moment. I'm in the same position. I know that Sunshinefairy has received half her package (coz lo! there's another half on the way!!!) but my feedback has yet to be updated. I'm happy to wait a bit longer, because I do have another swapslot open, if I find something I HAVE to join, but if you need feedback, then you could try a nice polite pm to bambikhantastic.

I think I took some pictures of what I sent, bunnyboo, if you want me to post them when I post mine.
